3 1. INTRODUCTION 1.1. European Union Programme for Employment and Social Innovation ("EaSI") The European Programme for Employment and Social Innovation "EaSI" is a European-level financing instrument managed directly by the European Commission to contribute to the implementation of the Europe 2020 strategy, by providing financial support for the Union's objectives in terms of promoting a high level of quality and sustainable employment, guaranteeing adequate and decent social protection, combating social exclusion and poverty and improving working conditions. The EaSI Programme shall, in all its axes and actions, aim to: a) pay particular attention to vulnerable groups, such as young people; b) promote equality between women and men, c) combat discrimination based on sex, racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation; d) promote a high-level of quality and sustainable employment, guarantee adequate and decent social protection, combat long-term unemployment and fight against poverty and social exclusion. Hence, in designing, implementing and reporting on the activity, beneficiaries/contractors must address the issues noted above and will be required to provide detail, in the final activity report on the steps and achievements made towards addressing those aims. This call for proposals is issued in the context of the implementation of the 2015 annual work programme for grants and procurement for EaSI (EURES axis), which upon adoption, can be consulted at: The Targeted Mobility Scheme "Your first EURES job" (hereinafter referred to as TMS- YfEj) will be implemented in the framework of the EaSI Regulation (EU) N 1296/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 December 2013, EURES Axis, Articles 20 b) and 21 d) 2. This scheme constitutes a continuation of Your first EURES job which was a preparatory action approved under the EU budget for the period The EURES axis The EURES axis of the EaSI programme aims basically at fostering workers' geographical mobility and boosting cross border employment opportunities. It has the following general objectives: Transparency of job vacancies, applications and any related information for jobseekers, workers and employer Development of services for the recruitment and placing of workers in employment Cross-border partnerships March

4 The EURES axis may be used to finance actions to promote voluntary mobility of individuals in the Union, on a fair basis, and to remove mobility obstacles. In this context, those objectives may be achieved with the implementation of 'targeted mobility schemes'. Targeted mobility schemes aim to test innovative methods to implement cross border job mobility and tackle the needs of specific target groups, economic sectors, occupations or countries. Vulnerable groups such as young people are a key priority. Recital 18 of the EaSI programme sets out as follows: The scope of EURES should be broadened to include developing and supporting targeted mobility schemes, after calls for proposals, at Union level with a view to filling vacancies where labour market shortcomings have been identified. In accordance with Art 47 TFEU, those schemes should support facilitating voluntary mobility among young workers in the Union. Targeted mobility schemes, such as those based on the preparatory action 'Your first EURES job', should make it easier for young people to access employment opportunities and to take up a job in another Member State, and should also encourage employers to create job openings for young mobile workers. Nevertheless, mobility schemes should not discourage the Union and Member States from helping young people to find a job in their home country. The operational framework and implementing guidelines concerning the TMS-YfEj scheme are laid down in the enclosed TMS-YfEj Implementing Guide which is an integral part of this call for proposals (Annex I). 2. POLICY AND ECONOMIC BACKGROUND Young people are among the hardest hit group by the job crisis in Europe, with the unemployment rate amongst this age group standing at 21.9% in November 2014, affecting around 5.1 million women and men aged 15 to 24 in the EU-28. Youth unemployment continues to vary widely between Member States with unemployment rates varying from less than 10% (i.e. Austria, Germany and The Netherlands) to more than 50% of the active population (e.g. Greece and Spain) 3. Young people who have a job often find themselves in a segmented labour market as most are on temporary contracts. People aged 15-24, in particular females, appear to be significantly exposed to labour market discouragement. The integration of adults aged above 25 in the labour market appears to be another challenge EU policy action The Commission is addressing the challenges of facing the recovery of the EU in its Europe 2020 strategy 4. EU policies and instruments should contribute to achieving the target of a 75% employment rate for women and men aged between 20 and 64. Young people are a priority target group for which several policy measures and initiatives are being developed. 3 EU Employment and Social Situation, Quarterly Review, December COM(2010)2020 of , 'Europe 2020: a strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth' March

5 The flagship initiative 'Youth on the Move' 5, the Youth Opportunities Initiative 6 and the Youth Employment Package 7 set out key actions to foster transitions and enhanced youth participation in the labour market. The Youth Employment Package 8 recommends Member States to introduce a Youth Guarantee to ensure that all young people up to age 25 receive a good quality offer for a job, apprenticeship, traineeship or continued education within four months of leaving formal education or becoming unemployed. The Council of Ministers reached political agreement on this Recommendation on 28 February The Commission revised the regulations on structural funds in order to allow quick implementation of the Youth Employment Initiative 9 proposed by the 2013 February European Council with a budget of EUR 6 billion over seven years, namely to reinforce and accelerate the delivery of youth-oriented activities supported by ESF funding. This funding envelope will top-up national spending on national Youth Guarantees. In parallel, action is being taken to reform the vocational training systems in Europe for young people. In this respect, a European Alliance for Apprenticeships 10 was launched in July 2013 with a view to improve the quality and supply of apprenticeships across Europe. A Council Recommendation for a European Quality Framework for Traineeships 11 was also tabled in December 2013 (and adopted in March 2014) to make sure that traineeships on offer in the Member States satisfy minimum learning and working quality standards Labour mobility Labour mobility is a strategic tool in addressing economic and social challenges and a potential trigger of economic growth. It includes all forms of job mobility, whether occupational (within the job, from job-to-job) or geographical (between regions or countries). In the case of geographical mobility, the freedom of movement for workers in the European Union is a right enshrined in the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (Art.45) and further regulated by specific EU legislation 12. Labour market data show that even in these times of economic downturn, Europe has shortages and surpluses of skilled labour, i.e. there are many job vacancies that remain unfilled due to the lack of suitable work force. Across the EU, bottleneck vacancies do not only occur in high skilled occupations but are also found in skilled and low skilled manual occupations 13.This is due both to mismatch in educational choices at high skill level, to poor wage or working conditions leading to high turnover and difficulties to replace ageing workers at lower skill levels and also to limited labour mobility. Geographical mobility in particular can contribute to improving the allocation of resources and serves as an adjustment mechanism for unbalanced labour markets whilst enabling economies to cope better with sudden shocks. 5 COM(2010)477 final 6 COM(2011)933 final 7 COM(2012)173 8 COM(2012)727 final of COM(2013)144 final of Regulation (EU) N 492/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council, on Freedom of movement for workers within the Union, OJ L 141, , p.1, and Directive 2004/38/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council, on The right of citizens of the Union and their family members to move and reside freely within the territory of the Member States, OJ L 158, , p See footnote 18 March

6 According to the EU-Labour force survey only 3.1% of the EU working citizens (15-64) live in a Member State different from the one of their nationality which is clearly not enough for a dynamic labour market with European dimensions. The preparatory action 'Your first EURES job' has been evaluated in The main findings are positive insofar as it was perceived as a meaningful tool to enhance youth labour mobility conditions and placement results. Against this background, the common approach at the highest EU policy level has been that "new efforts will be made to promote the mobility of young jobseekers, including by strengthening 'Your first EURES job'" Relevance of labour mobility for young people and businesses Young people One of the target groups with the highest propensity to become mobile are young people (knowledge of languages, appeal of innovative work experiences, no family responsibilities, etc.). Working in another Member State and living in a different cultural environment can be particularly attractive for gaining new skills and competences. A job, traineeship or apprenticeship abroad can improve young people's language skills and help them be more self-confident and adaptable. Young mobile workers can also be a relevant source of innovation in enterprises, more flexible for mobility and often more positive towards change. Yet there are still many obstacles hindering free movement in practice. Young people are often willing to work abroad but do not take up work opportunities in other countries either because they are not aware of them or because of the costs and insecurity of moving abroad. Businesses As far as businesses are concerned, successful job matching in the labour market depends also on labour demand and on job or work-based training openings made available by employers. SMEs in particular represent 99% of businesses in the EU generating 66.8% of total employment (88.8 million employed people in EU-28 in 2013) and are a key driver for economic growth, innovation, employment and social integration. They provide two out of three of the private sector jobs and contribute to more than half of the total value-added created by businesses in the EU 15. However, even in the case of vacancy bottlenecks, SMEs do not usually employ staff from abroad and so often lack the necessary Human Resources expertise and training services to integrate workers from other Member States. Obstacles related to the costs of hiring abroad, e.g. relocation or training costs mostly affect smaller companies. Assistance schemes are often cost-intensive and rarely implemented by SMEs. According to employers, intra-eu mobility is primarily hampered by language and socio-cultural issues and language courses are seldom made available European Council , EUCO 104/2/13 15 Annual report on European SMEs , DG ENTR 16 Study 'Innovative actions to provide good company practice on worker mobility for SMES and PES', KMU Forschung, 2008 March

7 3. TARGETED MOBILITY SCHEME Your first EURES job 3.1. Specific objectives The TMS-YfEj objectives are the following: 1. to foster the exercise of workers' freedom of movement as set out in the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU, Art. 45); 2. to contribute to filling hard to fill vacancies with available youth workforce at EU EFTA/EEA 17 level; developing comprehensive mobility support services in EU EFTA/EEA countries and enhancing the quality of services provided to employers who wish to recruit workers from other EU EFTA/EEA countries. boosting cross border matching and placement services for apprentices and trainees as a critical element to help transition from education to work; addressing labour mobility obstacles 3. to test innovative ways to improve the integration of young mobile candidates into the host country, in particular to trigger the development of a "welcoming/integration culture". The TMS-YfEj scheme shall provide support measures for young candidates aged to find a job, traineeship or apprenticeship in a place other than his/her country of residence, enshrined in a legally binding work relationship with the employer, i.e. there must be a labour contract between the parties. The activities shall thus target hard to fill vacancies, such as those identified in national, regional or even local labour shortage lists and/or labour market development studies (e.g. the EU study "Mapping and Analysing Bottleneck Vacancies on the EU Labour Market" 18, the European Vacancy and Recruitment Report , Employment and Social Situation: Quarterly Review 20 ) 3.2. Added value of the TMS YfEj The above mentioned study "Mapping and Analysing Bottleneck Vacancies on the EU Labour Market" recommends better targeted EU mobility aimed at specific specialisations and occupations in need, as well as better matching of skills in EU recruitment. Workers' mobility across the EEA is supported with the EURES network 21.With a view to enhance EURES potential as a job-matching and job placement tool and bring the network up to speed with the challenges posed by the post-crisis labour market situation, EURES is undergoing a reform. In this respect, a new EURES Decision 22 (hereafter "the Decision") has been adopted in November 2012 defining the new EURES objectives, scope and governance and a new EURES Charter (hereinafter "the Charter") has been endorsed by the members of the network in December The new Decision is in force since January EU 28, Iceland and Norway Further info on EURES at 22 COM Decision 2012/733/EU March

8 The TMS-YfEj will accompany the implementation of the EURES reform and support the EURES organisations in their development towards a more result-oriented business model. In this respect, the conclusions of the evaluation of the preparatory action "Your first EURES job" outline the general positive features of the scheme, which can be summarized as follows: Relevance: it responds to the labour market needs by focusing on youth unemployment, skills mismatches and mobility obstacles. Complementarity: it complements the EURES network, other EU mobility schemes as well as other national cross border schemes and initiatives. Added value: it adds value to youth labour mobility, given its package of recruitment, matching and placement activities combined with financial support incentives. Organisation and governance: it can better perform if driven by experienced organisations over longer periods of time, with enhanced quality standards and risk containment procedures. Effectiveness: it can better deliver with sound partnership networks and longer project implementation periods. Efficiency: it operates more efficiently over time; start-up costs can be significantly higher if activities are implemented by non-eures organisations. Ultimately, the TMS-YfEj scheme may be a mobility component of national Youth Guarantee schemes, by offering job or work-based learning opportunities abroad. 4. PURPOSE OF THIS CALL FOR PROPOSALS 4.1. Overall objectives The present call for proposals aims to support projects designed to fulfil the TMS-YfEj objectives specified in section 3.1 above. The provision of services as above under the TMS-YfEj should be ensured by EURES organisations, in cooperation with other organisations providing labour market related services (see section 5.2 for details on the eligibility requirements).those services can be provided at national, regional or local level. Applicant organisations shall foster the use of customised services and innovative working methods to improve the integration of mobile young workers into the host country, combined with financial incentives. In this respect, the call may support the development of partnerships between EURES and labour market stakeholders and players from other expertise areas willing to develop innovative placement support services (for further information, please refer to Annex I). The partnership approach under the present call shall be established in accordance with the EURES Decision. March

9 Interested organisations must submit a proposal focusing on Job placements (mandatory item) and also on at least one of following types of placements: Traineeships 23 Apprenticeships The proposals should focus on the provision of pre-placement, placement and postplacement services as defined in Annex I. If the lead applicant does not deal with traineeships or apprenticeships, these placements must be ensured by one or more co-applicant organisation(s) Nature of consortium and geographical scope The action should apply to young people and businesses (SMEs in particular) in the eligible countries, according to identified labour market needs. Recruitment and work placement activities may focus on inward and outward mobility, depending on national labour demand and supply opportunities. Projects should be based on a consortium with a broad geographical coverage. The consortium should be formed by at least seven participant organisations (established in seven different eligible countries), of which at least five must be EURES organisations (EURES members, EURES partners and associated EURES partners) and the others can be non-eures organisations (without prejudice to other stakeholders involved in the project) 24. The consortium must ensure that customer-oriented information as well as the recruitment, matching and work placement services will be provided in at least the consortium countries. Proposals submitted by applicant organisations should have a meaningful evidencebased European dimension. The choice of the relevant participating countries must be based on the analysis of labour market situation and identification of hard to fill vacancies and surpluses in workforce in respective Member States. The sources of evidence and the basis for this choice have to be clearly explained in the proposal. Whenever possible, information should be provided in the languages of the countries concerned. Applicant organisations should also be ready to provide information and support to nationals from other EEA Member States with no services or other facilities involved in this action Role of applicants and other organisations 25 The lead applicant should ensure that the project covers the overall activities set out in Annex I whereas co-applicants may be responsible for complementary specific services only. The required tasks and resources are detailed in Part C of the Guide (Annex I). 23 All placements in traineeships must be in compliance with the requirements of the Quality Framework for Traineeships, see: 24 See section for more information on the eligibility requirements concerning the nature of consortia and geographical scope of the call. 25 See section 5.2 for eligibility requirements for applicants and co-applicants and section 2 of its Annex II - Financial Guidelines for definitions of other participating organisations March

10 Applicant organisations (lead applicants) should act as work placement brokers and ensure the provision (directly or via other members of the consortium) of information, recruitment, matching and placement services. They should also be able to provide/ensure timely financial support to young mobile applicants and SMEs as defined in Annex I. Depending on the scope of the action, other organisations associate organisations (i.e. organisations which are not applicants, co-applicants or affiliated entities 26 ) may participate where their contribution may be necessary to the accomplishment of the objectives of the call. Associate organisations can be involved in the action at different levels but their costs will not be eligible. Their expertise may contribute to enhance the quality and diversity of the service package offered to both employers, jobseekers, trainee and apprentice candidates. The nature and scope of the activities under their responsibility needs to be specified in the application Expected results Selected projects in the framework of this call for proposals should support and finance the following groups: young people (aged 18-35) willing to find a job, traineeship or apprenticeship and move to another Member State; employers and SMEs in particular when these provide an integration programme for their newly-recruited young mobile workers, trainees or apprentices. The action will be "outcome" driven. Granted projects should be able to ensure the highest possible number of quality work placements. The expected result is estimated around at least 2500 the work placements 27 of young people in the EU EFTA/EEA countries 28, other than their country of residence throughout the duration of selected projects. Proposals submitted under this call shell clearly indicate the expected outcome in the area of youth placement, labour market integration services, after individual support and/or training measures. This information will be included in the "description of the action" (SWIM application). The expected outcome must be quantified in terms of expected placement/integration numbers in specific economic sectors. The consortium (see section 5.2) is free to choose its methods, tools, etc. on how to implement the action, provided they comply with the YfEJ TMS scheme Guidelines and lead to the expected results Work organisation and follow up The multi-beneficiary grant agreement to be signed between the Commission and the selected applicant organisations will be closely followed by a designated Commission official in the role of TMS-YfEj project correspondent, whose contact details will be provided to the selected organisations. 26 For further information, please refer to 'Financial Guidelines for Applicants", section 2 27 Filling of a vacancy (job, traineeship or apprenticeship) from the perspective of the sending country 28 The cost per placement may vary according to recruitment needs. According to previous experience, the average cost was estimated at ca. EUR 3800 per work placement March

11 The lead applicants will nominate a TMS-YfEj coordinator (i.e. the designated project manager). He/she must be a member of the staff team involved in the project and will participate in management meetings with the Commission. The name of the person must be clearly indicated in the proposal and the CV attached. It is planned to hold at least two meetings between the COM and TMS-YfEj coordinators (upon the decision of the Commission) in Brussels in the course of the life span of the selected projects (up one meeting every six months on average), back to back to the EURES Coordination meetings. The purpose is to provide guidance, coordinate and monitor project progress at European level. For this reason the Commission shall be also invited to participate to minimally one strategic meeting of the selected consortia per year. TMS-YfEj coordinator or representative of the lead applicant will also present the selected projects, progress on the implementation and results to the EURES Coordination Group, as established under Article 9 of the Decision. Project beneficiaries will be expected to report every six months, in line with the planning for these meetings and in accordance with the specifications indicated in Annex I, section E2. The information on targets and results of the projects will be shared with all EURES National Coordination Offices for the purpose of the programming, monitoring and reporting exercise on EURES pursuant to Article 5(5) of the Decision. 5.

An important SWIM annex (section F of the SWIM application) is the 'description of the action' (see point 9 in section 12 below). The purpose of this document is to provide more detailed information on the action, complementary to the specifications in the SWIM application. March

16 The description of the action has been elaborated in the form of a questionnaire following the structure of the 'Award criteria' listed in section 5.4 above. The questions refer to issues concerning the relevance, the quality of the methodology and of the proposed activities, the impact of the action as well as the applicant's measures to ensure the visibility of the action and the cost/efficiency of the operation. The applicant organisations must fill in the 'description of the action' form that can be downloaded from the SWIM application. Please follow the instructions on the form. All questions are mandatory. 7. FINANCIAL CONDITIONS Subject to the adoption of the 2015 Financing Decision for the EaSI programme, the indicative amount for this call is EUR 8,418,385. The European Union's financial contribution will not exceed 95% of the total eligible costs of the proposed activities. The European Commission reserves the right not to distribute all the funds available if the quality of the applications received does not warrant it. Under the present call the Commission expects to co-finance large scale projects. For illustrative purposes, the expected indicative average size of a grant awarded would be in the range of approximately EUR 4 8million. Sources of co-financing can be public or private. Grants are not intended to finance the normal operations of the applicant organisations; they are intended to cover only expenditure linked directly to the activities of the project. Applicant organisations should specify the requested amount for direct support to young people and SMEs as well as for Other support measures under the heading 'Costs of services', item 'Other services' of their budget proposal in SWIM.
